An Introduction to Pennine Marine -
a well kept secret in the boating world!
Pennine Marine is the premier marine dealership for ribs, powerboats and outboard engines in Northern England. We specialise in sales, servicing and support of ribs, powerboats, outboard engines - together with boat and engine servicing and outboard engine spares parts.
We also sell a full range of marine chandlery, sailing clothing, wetsuits, boat trailers, boat trailer spares and increasingly more canoes and kayaks.
We offer for sale only good quality new marine brands, or good preowned boats and engines. Being based in Yorkshire we always offer you quality boating products at reasonable prices.
As well as new boat and outboard engine sales, Pennine Marine has the best and most comprehensively equipped marine engine and outboard engine servicing workshop in the UK (these are the Suzuki Marine UK’s Managing Directors own words, not ours). We therefore offer you a full outboard and inboard engine service facility, with a comprehensive repair, upgrading and spare parts service.
Pennine Marine is hidden in the historic market town of Skipton - the "Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales National Park". We are based where you least expect to find a rib, powerboat or indeed any other large boating business. Therefore Pennine Marine is probably the best kept secret in the boating world.
If you haven’t heard of us or been here before - please visit us - we are open six days. Even experienced professionals in the marine and boating industry and senior RYA organisers and RYA trainers have been very surprised our size and sophistication when they have first been invited here! (One recent visitor - Chris of Ezyboat - was even more surprised on his second visit!). For new visitors to us, please tour this lovely area. Skipton and the Yorkshire Dales have plenty of attractions- both natural and historic- within a few miles of us, including the Dales National Park and several World Heritage sites.
Pennine Marine is on a par with major Solent based boating companies such as BHG and Saltern’s. However we are largely unknown, simply because don’t advertise in southern based boating magazines - PBO, Sailing Today, Yachting World, All at Sea, Motor Boats and Yachts, MBM etc. We don’t advertise with southerners as a point of principle. These boating magazines never come north of Watford - so we don’t spend our money with them!
Most of our ribs, boats, tenders, inflatable’s, outboard engine, boat trailers, servicing and canoe business therefore comes to us from personal recommendations, word of mouth and repeat orders.
P.S. If you think this is just our advertising copy- think again. You can read the two most popular on-line rib users on-line and web rib owners forums - Ribnet and Hotribs. These will tell you first- hand what customers from all over northern England really think of us here at Pennine Marine......!
